The purpose is to proclaim Jesus’s death, burial, and resurrection to make disciples by teaching all of Jesus’s commands so that the church is devoted to the Apostles’ doctrine, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayers (Matt 28:19–20; Acts 2:38–47; 1 Cor 15:1–4).

I do believe in the triune God, the inerrancy of the Scriptures, and salvation by grace through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation by faith includes that one die to the old self of sin, be buried with Christ in baptism, and rise to live in the newness life (Rom 6:4–6; Eph 2:4–6; Col 2:12–13). If you want to understand my beliefs, then please see this article: “Ten Clear Characteristics of the Church of Christ.“
Here is my first article from 2007 and the basis for the title of this site: “A Defense of 2 Timothy 3:16 & 17.” By “Scripture,” this publication recognizes Christ’s Spirit speaking through the Scriptures to make each person of God complete unto every good work (2 Tim 3:16–17).
